Bali Myna - Only a few of these in the world!

Bali Myna - Only a few of these in the world!

Bali Myna
Leucopsar rothschildi
Range: Limited to the island of Bali in Indonesia.
There are only a few of these critically endangered birds left in the wild. They have been on the brink of extinction since the early 90s. Illegal capture for the pet trade is the primary reason for the decline.

My original title was "only 6 in the world" because that is what the Chattanooga Warner Park Zoo said. However, I found photographs of more than 6 while doing an online search.
